Meet the Doctors

  • Douglas Nieh

    Dr. Doug and Dr. Cecily are both graduates of the Tufts School of Veterinary Medicine and have each completed internships at the prestigious Animal Medical Center in New York City.

    Dr. Doug spent 10 years working in emergency and critical care at a 24 hr referral and specialty hospital outside of Philadelphia, PA.  His interests include pulmonary disease, gastroenterology, nephrology, cardiology and endocrine diseases.  He has extensive experience working with complex critically ill patients and performs advanced procedures like chest tube and esophageal feeding tube placement, pericardiocentesis, chemotherapy and electroacupuncture.  

  • Cecily Nieh

    Dr. Cecily worked alongside her husband at the same referral and specialty hospital for 4 years before transitioning into a progressive private practice in Princeton, NJ for 3 years. Her focuses include soft tissue and orthopedic surgery, preventative medicine and dentistry.  She also enjoys working with exotics (pocket pets, snakes, birds).

    Dr. Doug and Cecily's goal is to provide exceptional patient care for a reasonable price and pride themselves on being open, honest, accessible.  One of the most frustrating aspects of veterinary medicine is finding a veterinarian that isn't going to be replaced every 2 years.  As the new owners of the Northeast Veterinary Hospital, Dr. Doug and Cecily are here to stay for the next 20 years and beyond and hope to become a part of your family and your loved ones' care.

  • Nicole Barton

    Dr. Barton grew up in South Carolina.  She is a graduate from the University of Georgia's College of Veterinary Medicine and was a member of the Phi Zeta Veterinary Honor Society.  She was the recipient of multiple scholarships for outstanding academic performance in the field of small animal medicine.

    She has special interests in internal medicine, soft tissue surgery, dentistry and advanced pain management.  Dr. Barton views her patients like family members and does everything she can to facilitate and strengthen the unique relationship between you and your pet.  She also integrates special 'fear free' techniques when working with patients.

  • Spencer Bragg

  • "Thank you guys so much for being there and looking Mr. Kane over when I was worried about him because of his just laying around and not feeling himself. Even though your exam revealed nothing wrong, it made me feel a lot better, and by the way Mr. Kane seems to be back to his old ways, Thanks again."
